Experience 18th Century Living..
Looking for the simple life? Want the feel of the “rural” with the convenience of the suburbs? This location along the CT River in South Windsor offers the best of both worlds. Three lots available on Pleasant Valley Road in South Windsor, CT are three opportunities to recreate the atmosphere of 18th century living in these to-be-built colonial homes. Based on period design, classical details, and a lifetime spent in preservation, restoration, and the authentic reproduction of New England colonials, Sunderland Period Homes provides more than just a house, they provide a home filled with character, integrity and the details of a bygone era.
The fundamental principles of proportion and balance may be a thing of the past – but are still found in the quality of our work, sustained by the craftsmanship and detail that goes into all of our homes. Wide board floors, crown mouldings, paneled fireplace walls, wainscot, colonial kitchens – are some of the details needed to recreate a New England colonial home. Alone, these will not capture 18th century atmosphere. It takes a lifetime of study and work in the field to know how to put them together. After 35 years in the field of American colonial architecture, we have earned that know how.
We’d like to build something special for you, something in keeping with the historic neighborhood. Something that would have been witnessed by the characters who once crossed its past. Come, walk in the footsteps of John Adams, Eli Terry and Ulysses S. Grant, the post rider who delivered the mail to the old post office, the Bissell who carried on Paul Revere’s ride, the preacher who became president of Princeton, the farmer’s wife who rolled the first American cigar. The charm of living in history never tires. The elegance and grace of the antique house never wanes, its character never fades. Classical architecture will always be in fashion. Come, be a part of something timeless.
